================================= Doctoral Position in Human Biometeorology and Sensor Technology ================================= The Chair of Environmental Meteorology in the Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Freiburg (Germany) offers a paid part-time position at doctoral level, employed at 65 % TV-E13. Start-date: November 1, 2019 (negotiable), limited to 3-years. We are seeking a doctoral student to conduct research within a multi-institutional European research project (INTERREG). The goal of the research project - which is at the intersection between human biometeorology, sensor technology, and nowcasting - is to improve heat warnings for specific occupational sectors and more broadly support climate adaptation strategies. The doctoral program will be pursued in the Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Freiburg (Germany) in close collaboration with the Research Centre Human Biometeorology of the German Meteorological Service (DWD) in Freiburg and with partner institutions in Germany, France and Switzerland. The thesis is to be jointly supervised by Prof. Dr. Andreas Christen (University of Freiburg) and Prof. Dr. Andreas Matzarakis (DWD, Freiburg). The aim of the research project is to develop, test and implement a prototype of a mobile biometeorological sensor network in support of real-time thermal comfort assessment in different transient work environments (e.g. construction sites, transport companies, forestry, agriculture, …). Using real-time data form 100+ sensors, thermal stress indices will be calculated, submitted to a centralized server and aggregated for different occupational conditions. The measurements are in support of developing more targeted forecasts and official heat stress warnings by DWD and Meteo France. The prototype system will further be used to explore the effectiveness and usefulness to send targeted heat warnings and recommendations to employees within selected occupational sectors. Applicants must hold a M.Sc. in meteorology, environmental sciences, environmental engineering, physical geography or a related field. The applicant will need to design, program and operate sensor networks, work with large datasets and time-series, and assess forecast products using feedback from end users. A M.Sc. thesis in a related area, with experience in human biometeorology, urban climatology, or environmental data analysis or forecasting is advantageous. If you are interested in this opportunity, please submit: * Letter of intent detailing why you are interested in this specific area of research. * Curriculum Vitae. * Copies of your university degree(s) with grades (B.Sc. and M.Sc. certificate / Diploma certificate and transcript), or alternatively documents that demonstrate completed degree requirements or expected completion with grades. * Suggestion of a referee with contact details. We particularly encourage applications from women for the position advertised. Please send in a complete application along with the above-mentioned supporting documents by September 15, 2019 at the latest. Please send documents with reference to “INTERREG Doctoral Position” to the following address in written or electronic form (max 10 MB). All electronic submissions will be confirmed. Your documents will not be returned after the application process. For this reason, please submit copies only. Please note that although the project has been approved, the position is subject to final administrative approval.
